       bmp2tiff  -  create  a  TIFF file from a Microsoft Windows Device Independent Bitmap image


       bmp2tiff [ options ] input.bmp [ input2.bmp ... ] output.tiff


       bmp2tiff converts a Microsoft Windows Device Independent Bitmap image file  to  TIFF.   If
       several  input  BMP  files  are  being  specified  the  multipage TIFF output file will be
       created.  By  default,  the   TIFF   image   is   created   with   data   samples   packed
       (PlanarConfiguration=1),  compressed  with the PackBits algorithm (Compression=32773), and
       with each strip no more than  8  kilobytes.   These  characteristics  can  overridden,  or
       explicitly specified with the options described below.


       -c     Specify  a  compression  scheme  to  use  when  writing  image data: -c none for no
              compression, -c packbits for the PackBits compression algorithm (the  default),  -c
              jpeg  for  the  baseline  JPEG  compression  algorithm,  -c  zip  for  the  Deflate
              compression algorithm, and -c lzw for Lempel-Ziv & Welch.

       -r number
              Write data with a specified number of rows per strip;  by  default  the  number  of
              rows/strip is selected so that each strip is approximately 8 kilobytes.
